There are probably a few things we like to do whilst visiting an aquarium, including standing and marvelling at the vast array of colourful fish crammed in the various tanks.
But we’d never have thought it would be a great place to film a music video. And that’s where Olympia thinks outside the box, with the video for her just-released new single ‘Tourists’.
Lifted from her forthcoming album, which EMI tells us we can expect to see sometime next year, ‘Tourists’ has a real pop sensibility to it; yes, the guitar we’ve come to know her for is still present, but there are plenty of synths in the mix here too.
“I’d dragged all my writing notes to Phillip Island and let myself succumb to experience in itself; the feeling of sun on your hand; sand and sticks at your feet,” Olympia says of the track. “The song is written from that vista – looking out from the sand dunes with the sun going down, right before you make your way back home in the dark.”
To celebrate the release of the song (and the video, below), Olympia has confirmed two special live shows – one each in Sydney and Melbourne.
November 24 : Melbourne (Shebeen)
December 03 : Sydney (Oxford Circus)
